Musical Theatre – More Than Meets the Eye

Musical Theatre – More Than Meets the Eye

For as long as I can remember, I have been surrounded by music. My mom was always singing and dancing around the house, and I spent my weekends with a barbershop singer who was eager to teach me everything he knew. I really did grow to enjoy singing, and if I’m being honest, about 90% of my free time in high school was spent wandering around the Fine Arts Building. My senior year, I decided I wanted to expand my horizons a bit and I took a theatre tech class. I got to help build and manage sets for the various productions that the theatre department put on. Later that year, I had the opportunity to go see the Broadway production of The Lion King, one of my all-time favorite Disney movies as a kid. That was the night I fell in love with musical theatre. Since I was currently involved in the theatre tech class, I was able to appreciate the show from so many different angles. I was fascinated not only by the singing and the orchestra, but also by the costumes, lighting, sets, choreography, the acting, and pretty much everything else about it. I have become obsessed with so many Broadway musicals since then and I’m over the moon whenever I get to see a live show.

Musical theatre isn’t just about the music and the acting. It’s the concept of collaboration of all the skill and effort put towards every single show. It is amazing. It’s a full production team giving their best effort to make each show come to life multiple times a day. The next time you are watching a musical production, pay attention to every single little detail, because it will blow your mind.

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.

My daughter has been registered here since she was 7. Each instructor she’s had has been very friendly and great to work with. Currently she has lessons with Ms Maria and we are so grateful for her and the entire SAMA staff. I can’t recommend enough.

San Antonio Music Academy is awesome, my son loves the guitar lessons and is super excited to attend every week! He started with zero experience and progressed surprisingly fast. Randy is an amazingly talented guitarist/teacher. He is very patient, yet knows how to push students to the next level. Highly recommend all the instructors, the staff is great!
